the version of git is
git version 126.96.36.199
the box runs
Linux redhat 4 2.6.9-55.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Apr 20 17:03:35 EDT 2007 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
and the repository came from svn.
this has happened on 1 repository with many branches >10 and one with
3 so it seems to be independent of the #of branches. I do not know how
to reproduce this but it seems to happen after i do a fetch and do not
rebase although it doesn't happen everytime so i'm guessing it must be
something else. thx for the help.
